It was somewhat of a predictable bounce back performance. After an embarrassing loss Saturday at home to the lowly Cavs, the Nuggets looked like a different team 24 hours later against the playoff-bound Clippers. Denver hit its 3s, the Nuggets out-rebounded their opponent, and their defense locked in for key stretches across the second half. It resulted in a 114-104…...

It took just three and a half minutes for the threat of Nikola Jokic’s three-point shot to bend the Clippers’ defense. Early in the first quarter of the Nuggets’ 114-104 win over the Clippers, Jokic recieved a pass on the right wing from Jamal Murray and slowly went into his shooting motion as Ivica Zubac ran out to contest him…...

Did anyone have flashbacks to last May and the Nuggets and Trail Blazers’ Western Conference semifinal matchup while watching the Pelicans bully the Nuggets on national TV in Denver’s first Christmas Day game since 2012? In that playoff series, CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard poured in 26.4 and 25.1 points per piece across seven games. But it was what the…...

Gary Harris is averaging 37.2 minutes per game over the Nuggets’ current three-game winning streak. That’s too many for Michael Malone. “The greatest challenge I have now is I can’t continue to play Gary Harris 38 minutes a night. I really can’t,” Malone said Tuesday. “Sometimes I get caught in the moment. I’m worried about the Knicks. We’ve got to…...

Jamal Murray clapped. Assistant coach Wes Unseld Jr. took a few steps onto the court to congratulate his players. Torrey Craig rose from his spot on the Nuggets’ bench and let out a scream. The Nuggets weren’t celebrating a Jamal Murray 3-pointer, a magical Nikola Jokic assist, or a Will Barton basket. Denver was rejoicing over its first highlight play…...

Six possessions, six baskets. Scoring hadn’t come this easy to the Nuggets in what seemed like weeks. The ball moved swiftly from side-to-side, and Denver got up the floor and into its offense with a purpose, playing with a tempo and pace that had only seen the light of day in small spurts to open the 2019-20 campaign. The Nuggets…...

The ball popped, the shots fell, and the Denver Nuggets rolled. At long last, we saw the Nuggets put on a performance that’s better suited for the offensive identity and acumen we’ve bestowed on this group. Denver rocked the Miami Heat, who had the best net rating in the NBA coming into the game, recording 35 assists in the 109-89…...

Nikola Jokic threw his hands up in disgust. In the moment, the Nuggets’ All-Star center’s frustration centered around one sequence — a game-sealing errant Jamal Murray bounce pass intendslowed for Jokic which ended up in the hands of Jahlil Okafor and turned into a Pelicans basket — but Jokic’s annoyance around the Nuggets’ play and particularly Denver’s offense had…...

Everyone take a deep breath. That’s what the Nuggets are saying to each other in the visiting locker room at The Amway Center right now after a narrow 91-87 win over the Orlando Magic. It was an ugly, frustrating, and puzzling night, but a win is a win. Still, the Nuggets have a long way to go. You get the…...

No one would take a mulligan on a 3-0 start, but those who watched the Nuggets closely through three games knew they had a loss coming. That materialized Tuesday night when the Nuggets let a game slip away from them, falling to the Dallas Mavericks 109-106 on their home court. The vaunted bench struggled mightily, and Denver’s starters showed a…...

The Nuggets played a C-level game of basketball Monday in Sacramento. Denver shot poorly from the field, converted under 30% of its 3s, and the Nuggets All-NBA center just didn’t have it. The Nuggets still eked out a 101-94 road win. It was a testament to just how deep and talented this Nuggets team is and it takes two well…...

The Denver Nuggets rang in the new basketball year with a win over the Trail Blazers in Portland, snapping Rip City’s 18-game winning streak at home in a season opener. Several of Denver’s stars struggled, the first half was a complete wash, and Jokic only logged 23 minutes on the court, but it was enough for a redemptive win to…...

Michael Malone still doesn’t have any purple in his closet. It’s been nearly five years since he was let go by the Sacramento Kings, yet Denver’s coach insists that his wife Jocelyn’s favorite color is still banned from his wardrobe.
